No 209 The impressive bulk of Hungry Hill post ascent (Expand pics)
Just complete the 212 2000foot summits as listed by Paddy Dillon 'the Mountains of Ireland' (1992) with an ascent of Masatiompan in a gale on 20th August. It all started with a trip up Cuilcagh on 1st August 1998, the first hill walking i'd done since my PE training a decade before. Soon I'd caught the bug and when a colleague (thanks a lot Phil) gave me a copy of Dillon's book, a quest which took me to every corner of this little wet island, and up more than a few dodgy 'roads' was underway. Apart from the challanges of the climbs, what a way to see the country and meet the welcoming people of Ireland (only one unfriendly incident in over 150 days of walking) as every summer the VW pointed West or South for another day or week of boot bashing. The 'fabulous' summers of '07 '08 and '09 ensured things slowed to a crawl in the Maumturks and Beara after summit 200 was climbed in 2006, but we got there in the end. Now to go back and do the best ones all over again, maybe on a clear day now the bagging fever has been sated, and I would love to hear from other Mountain Views members who have completed the summits from Dillon's list on their experiences and thoughts on this particular challenge.
